This deep colored American Brown Ale is often requested and one of our personal favorites. Many a weekend was spent perfecting this one. Brewed with 2 - row pale and 5 specialty malts, its malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add to balance this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettings it’s the best American Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

A: Poured deep briwn with crimson highlights and asmall tannish cap and light lacing S: Some citrus on the nose with some toffee and nuts T: Has a nice toffee flavor with a light citrus hops, some nuts in the background with a hint of caramel stickiness M: A nice medium body with good carbonation, some toffee dominates the palate O: I am not a fan of this style whatsoever but I found this beer tasty, drinkable and balanced

12 oz can from shrubber85 through phaleslu. Pours a clear caramel brown color witha medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, herbal tea, mild citrus, light toast, mild earthy notes to the finish, hops seem faded at the finish, ok, but nothing to revisit.

12 ounce can from shrubber. Thanks! The beer is a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has milk chocolate and brown sugar notes. More of a sweet brown ale. I get some woody notes as well. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

This is a pretty solid brown ale. Hint of hops with a nice nutty toasted malt backbone. Mild dark chocolate bitterness is also present. Another fine beer from Good People...
